06/12/2017 | eaglespi | Leave a comment Self-care is a necessity during the holiday season!! Why? Because of the accumulation of trauma and drama over the years.. not only ours, but those we may be doing unconscious energetic merges with. Suddenly holiday songs remind us of sadder times. But truly, songs are just songs. And at one time, perhaps many years ago, we loved that Little Drummer Boy and our temperature challenged friend Frosty! When the heck did the innocence of our youth get dissolved into cynicism, commercialism and any other ‘ism’s’ that make us cranky? Christmas carols can be celebrations. It is all perspective. They are not creating your emotions. They may simply draw on an old wound. Now you can work on the wound to dissolve it (yes I still have a few spaces before year’s end, but book your Energetic Balancing or Soul Retrieval sessions soon so you don’t miss out), but you have another option available. Empaths and those who are sensitive enough to avoid unconscious ‘energetic bumper cars’ with stressed shoppers can be blessed by using conscious energetic merging. And this leads up to Holiday Tip #6. Holiday Tip: Where your focus goes, your energy goes. So shift your focus to things that feel good. You, more than most, are truly able to stand in another’s shoes. With permission and respect, energetically merge with those who are transfixed and transformed by the magic and joy that December can bring. Feel the excitement of the little one about to visit Santa for the first time. Become aware of the satisfaction someone knitting an outfit to be donated to their local hospital for a newborn feels. Imagine the sense of accomplishment that a young dancer has gotten as she has danced en pointe for the first time in this year’s Nutcracker performance in front of a sold out crowd! Allow the hush of a church silenced by the pure sweet voices of a beautiful choir wash through you and soothe you. Imagine the joy of your neighbour who finally got their lights fixed perfectly on their tallest tree in their front yard to surprise their children with when they return from school. Watch Charlie Brown’s Christmas and visualize yourself skating on the pond with the other characters… or dancing on stage with joy! Where you put your focus matters. Use your ability to feel what others feel in a way that serves you best!
